It really was game, set and match when keen tennis player Adam Jarvis married Hanna Burns Gledhill.

Ironically, the couple met through dating site Match.com and tied the knot in the beautiful setting of St Chad’s Church in Poulton.

It was a particularly poignant venue as Hanna’s parents, Simon and Dana Gledhill, had married there 35 years earlier.

Blackpool born Hanna, 29, is a former pupil of Kirkham Grammar School and Blackpool Sixth Form and works as a sales executive for Evans Halshaw. Adam, 31, is from St Austell in Cornwall and works as a national manager for a healthcare provider.

They tied the knot on April 15 with a reception at the Great Hall at Mains.

Adam proposed during a luxury weekend break and had prepared an album of photographs depicting their romance, with a photograph on the last page of Adam holding up a card asking Hanna to marry him.

Hanna said: “Our wedding day was a really joyous celebration of our marriage.

“The sun was shining, the cherry blossom was in full bloom, everyone was happy and smiling- who could ask for more?”

Revd Martin Keighley, vicar of St Chad’s set a relaxed and happy tone, which was enhanced by the voices of Poulton People’s Choir both before and during the service.

The bridesmaids were waving their bouquets to the music and Hanna and her sister Kate were dancing at the altar as the register, which was at the front of the church rather than in the vestry, was being signed.

Guests were taken to the reception by Routemaster buses, whilst Hanna and Adam travelled in a Grand Imperial vintage car.

Once there, everyone enjoyed excellent food provided by Twelve and the guests were entertained throughout the afternoon by Paul Guard, Adam Soar on saxophone and in the evening by The Keytars.

Hanna said: “The flowers were absolutely stunning. Jane Thompson of Flower Design was asked to create a colourful Easter theme.

“The bouquets, button holes, corsages and floral arrangements at the reception were amazing.

“Every table was slightly different with the top table depicting an easter egg hunt using moss, nests, pastel coloured eggs and spring flowers.”

The ladies from St Chad’s provided beautiful arrangements for the church interior.

After their wedding, the couple, who live in Poulton, jetted off for their honeymoon in Las Vegas and Mexico.
